'The Wolf Among Us: Episode 2' coming early February, Telltale admits struggles

The first episode of The Wolf Among Us was released in October for the PS3, Xbox 360, PC and iOS devices but Telltale Games missed its usual release window of two months for the second episode. The developer finally announced a release time frame for Episode 2: Smoke & Mirrors on Tuesday while admitting to some struggles.

"[Episode 2] should be available the first week of February," Telltale President Kevin Bruner announced on the official forums. "We are working hard with all of our partners (Xbox, PlayStation, Steam, Apple) to coordinate everything, but we’re confident enough to announce that here. The episode is looking really good (as is the rest of the season!)."

That means a four month gap between the release of the first and second episode which is very unlike Telltale Games' usual two month waiting period between episodes. There's a reason for that though according to Bruner.

"We are very concerned about the long delay for this episode, but this is one of those occasions where several things conspired against us (not to mention the additional delays due to the holidays)," he explained. "I won't dive into the details, but it’s been an unusual and specific set of circumstances and we do not anticipate it happening again as we go forward with the rest of the season."

The release of The Walking Dead: Season 2 in the middle of December likely played into this as well though Bruner doesn't call out the game by name. Telltale Games recently announced that it also has upcoming games based on Game of Thrones and Borderlands for later this year so gamers will be interested to see if the developer can keep up with its usual release schedule.

In our review of The Wolf Among Us: Episode 1 - Faith, we said that a "more ambiguous leading man and sinister murder mystery full of shocking twists make Wolf its own game though and one that shouldn’t be missed for players looking for a mature story-based adventure."
